The Asperger Plus Child
Asperger Plus Child by George T. Lynn
Book Description"The Asperger Plus Child: How to Identify and Help Children with Asperger Syndrome and Seven Common Co-Existing Conditions" is based on current research and the author's clinical observations from working with brilliant, wild, odd, and difficult children for fifteen years. It provides a map that helps them understand better at home and at school. "The Asperger Plus Child" is written for parents, teachers, counselors, and medical professionals. In this book, George Lynn continues the tradition of breaking new ground in his insights about the children he calls attention different. Some pearls from this work are: why it is important to understand the real difference between autism and Asperger Syndrome; how you can tell if a child has AS or ADD and why the distinction will become more important as the child grows through his teen years; and, what a child with AS who also has a nonverbal learning disability looks like compared to a child with AS without an NLD! Though each child is as different as a fingerprint, neurology exercises a powerful force on character development: there are shared patterns, there are important differences. "The Asperger Plus Child" presents a commonsensical, interesting, and understandable description of these essential distinctions.
